    All I want from new Builds is to not have features/items/whatever broken that worked in previous Builds, much prefer longer waits so they can test Builds properly. As this game matures it's going to be a right kick in the nuts if the above happens too often, makes it hard for modders to know what to do and just plain annoying for racers, time to step up and deliver.

    I don't believe anyone wants to have broken build just to have a new build...of course I meant new all around better build would be nice to have at this point.

    Building 329 in a couple of minutes. Will need testing. Should have a load of fixes. Possible unstable release. We will see. 50/50

    Possible unstable release? I hope that means for internal testing :D

    Software usually becomes "unstable" when it has some major changes introduced.

    So, unlike longer wait for build 298, this may actually be a good news. If this, or one of upcoming builds proves stable and it gets released, we may move ahead a little more than usual.
    "Should have a load of fixes" indicates this as well.

    I think that releasing unstable builds with obvious flaws and bugs such as e.g. reflection issues is perfectly ok as long as its a Beta game. But as far as I know the Beta period is over?? To me that means that we could rightfully expect that every released build works like intended without any obvious bugs - and then the product naturally evolves with new fully functioning features for every new build. If its not Beta anymore the customers shouldnt be the testers anymore. Furthermore I dont understand how the shadows popping up / lod issues / bad AA / Flickering lights etc could survive the transition from Beta to "evolving product". That should be fixed as an absolute minimum before going out of Beta.

    Stable and a load of FIXES sounds good will be worth waiting for.

    Just don't get paranoid over "possible unstable" guys :)
    Considering that they moved to a new compiler with build 298, I'd say that one could also be called "possibly unstable". It had some issues that were immediately fixed by build 300 and now it's fine.

    There should be a term "K Szczeched"... I've been a victim of this educational phenomenon my self and am wiser for it.

    I wonder sometimes if the guys at ISI sit around at the end of each day and one says to the others, "Hey guys, look at this cryptic message I just put out" and they all sit there laughing as tens of people debate the meaning on this forum...

    You usually don't do that kind of things intentionally, but you end up laughing anyway :)
    Poeples hunger for information makes them go too far with conclusions... often in the wrong direction ;)

    I'll summarise pretty much every rf2 tweet ever posted.

    "We may or may not release something eventually"
